: in a move that is beneath the dignity of the oval office, it appears that the obama administration changed the monthly jobs report for political gain. after he was crushed at the denver debate, the labor department announced that the unemployment rate dropped magically to 7.8% in september. and the job registered more than 800,000. that's one of the biggest one-month jumps in 29 years. let me say this one more time. the biggest jump since 1983, convenient, considering that barack obama finds himself in the midst of perhaps the worst political week of his life. while the president claims that the unexpected news is a sign that america is, quote, moving forward, there are a growing number of skeptics that are crying foul. chief is the former g.e. ceo jack welch. unbelievable job numbers. they can't debate so they change the numbers. he appeared earlier today on "your world." >> these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. every economist predicted roughly 90,000 to 120,000. this economy doesn't feel like the employment improved this level. it is just -
a fire storm questioning the numbers and whether the obama administration manipulated the numbers. jack welch didn't back down. he said for those who like me to pipe down. the 7 numbers are not plausible and that's why i made a stink about it the only thing he would change about the initial tweets. he might have added a question mark. >> i flat out agree with jack walch. those numbers released by the government are unbelievable . they created enormous skepticism they are so convenient. a survey of 60,000 households miraclously finds 183,000 people who returned to work four weeks before the election. that is unbelievable. >> gretchen: jack welch said there was not a surge of un-- employment. >> it betrays a totallyy false picture of america's economy. right now our economy is not doing well. unemployment numbers suggest it has been a surge in our economy that is simply not true. >> gretchen: just so our viewers understand. the objective? >> no, there is a element of subjectivity. >> gretchen: you call up people and you say are you employed or not or part-time job or full-time job. >> you
